PNSW Marathon Race 2 – Woronora Results

Sunny skies and light winds greeted paddlers who made the trip to Woronora for Race 2 of the PNSW Marathon Series making a change from the recent rainy and stormy weather that seems to have gone on for so long as to become the norm. With 201 boats entered and good numbers in all Divisions, the racing was guaranteed to be close with the course offering up some narrow turns to pass through “the shute” as well as a few shallow sections that really increased the groan factor particularly when heading into the tidal flow. Reports from paddlers doing 20kms was that the shallow sections were particularly tough in the second lap and I’m sure most paddlers appreciated the barbecue and coffee wagon that was on-site to help top up the energy levels after the race.
11 paddlers from CCCC entered and we achieved some good results on the day to see the club sitting in 7th place on 32 points in the overall club standings.
Full results can be found at and here is a summary:
Division 3 – Mick finished in 5th with Cam coming in 9th
Division 6 – Marni finished in 7th place with Anne and Jim opting for an “early finish”
Division 9 – Jenny and Jack finished 3rd with Ross and Steve crossing the line in 2nd in their ranking race
Division 10 – Lyn finished in 9th place
Division 12 – Owen took the honours with a 1st place finished.
Race 3 on Sunday April 9th is the CCCC based race on Wyong River so lets get as many of our paddlers on the water as possible to support what will be a great day!!
